You Can Run But You Can't Hide  
5/28/10 Posted 5/28/10

All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; So wrote William Shakespeare 400 years ago. Today the evidence of participation is the photograph and the current exhibition at Tate Modern ‘Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera’ documents that participation, both voluntary and involuntary. From staged photographs such as Marilyn Monroe’s billowing skirt and the fashion shots of Helmut Newton to the vernacular of the streets in works by such luminaries as Henri Cartier-... [more]

Martin Honert: Bedtime Story  
Martin Honert at Bloomberg Space April 8th, 2010 - May 15th, 2010
Posted 4/25/10

Martin Honert, Schlafsaal, 2009. Martin Honert is number 21 of the Bloomberg Space ongoing Comma project, launched in 2009 with the intention of showcasing thirty of the most outstanding and established international artists. The programme is curated by Sacha Craddock (the chair of New Contemporaries and an ex Turner Prize judge) and Vanessa Desclaux (a critic who has writes for a number of publications, but you may recognise her from A:N). It is fast paced, with each show lasting only a few we... [more]

125993047546 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize '10 Winner  
Anna Fox, Zoe Leonard, Sophie Ristelhueber, Donovan Wylie at The Photographers' Gallery February 12th, 2010 - May 2nd, 2010
Posted 3/23/10

The “surgically precise images” of Sophie Ristelhueber has won her the 2010 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.  In a ceremony on 17 March, film director Terry Gilliam presented her with the £30,000 award at The Photographers’ Gallery.  Hailed for “push[ing] the boundaries of the photographic medium”, her 2009 retrospective exhibition in Paris earned the nomination. The annual European competition, now in its 14th year, draws international entries from contemporary photographers.  Considered one of th... [more]

Anna Fox, Zoe Leonard, Sophie Ristelhueber, Donovan Wylie at The Photographers' Gallery February 12th, 2010 - May 2nd, 2010
Posted 3/10/10

For a “leading contemporary” photographic competition deemed “one of the most prominent exhibitions” at this gallery, the experience is decidedly underwhelming.  The nominees may well be worth the £30,000 prize, but the scant offering leaves visitors with little indication why.  With photo-documentaries dominating the line-up, originality has taken a back seat. The series ‘Eleven Blowups’ (‘06) by Sophie Ristelhueber drew interest with its “layers of construction and destruction”, focusing on th... [more]

Photo Competition Dumps Winner  
1/21/10 Posted 1/21/10

The judges of The Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition have determined that there is no winner for 2009. The previously declared winner, José Luis Rodríguez, has been stripped of his award for allegedly using an animal model in his The Storybook Wolf photograph. The competition, which attracted over 34,000 entries from 94 countries in 2009, rules clearly state that photographs of animal models may not be entered into the competition and such images will be disqualified if they a...

Amanda Language and Surfaces @ Fold Gallery's Unrelated Oxides  
Natasha Bailey, Joshua Kim, Susan Kordalewski, Wendy Mclean, Iain Sharpe, Dan Shaw-Town, Liesel Thomas, Amanda Wasielewski at FOLD August 7th, 2009 - August 23rd, 2009
Posted 8/10/09

The month of August for London is the holiday month for London in regards to art. Not so in Hackney.  A group exhibition at Fold Gallery this month curated by three artists that are also in the exhibition. As far as summer exhibitions go this is set up for a bland, over-hanged space with absolutely no room was made for cohesion. It was a surprise that Unrelated Oxides exemplified a focus in a group exhibition. The premise of the exhibition is a correlation with a quote, by Sebastian Faulks, that... [more]

ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART OVERVIEW   I caught the tail end of the Royal College of Art MA Fine Art and Sculpture degree shows this weekend. When I first found out that the sculpture department separated from the main campus a few years ago the first thing I thought was, what a shame. This really didn’t show a promotion of cross-departmental mixing that other fine art schools seem to.  After seeing both the RCA main campus show at South Kensington and the RCA Sculpture show in Battersea I now kno...

Probably too big, but the effort is inspirational in itself. Liminal starts with a story - one artist meets another artist, a spark of connection, a gathering of other like-minded artists, a collaboration. The ideas have to do with architecture - the information architecture of... [more]

Serrano Review from The Sawdust Review

Andres Serrano, The Unbearable Lightness of BeingYvon Lambert - London3 Feb - 28 March 09 M.O. Berger, The Sawdust Review( There is a way of thinking that sees art as about buzz. Packaging, publicity, celebrity, it says, are what makes something quality art. They see evaluating a piece of art as a completely arbitrary exercise, and so, whatever, I guess that piece is kinda cool - it's famous and at least I understand it. This is a way of thinking that does not beli... [more]

Sean Snyder, IndexInstitute of Contemporary Arts12 Feb - 19 April 09 MO Berger, The Sawdust There is nothing too exciting here, but that does not mean it is not worth checking out. The way the ICA gallery spaces are set up - cinema, café, and bookshop interspersed - they are on two different levels, which maybe makes it difficult to maintain that exclusive focus on the art while walking from the downstairs gallery to the next but which, it turns out, echoes th...

4 From the Sawdust Review:  
Sean Snyder at Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) February 12th, 2009 - April 19th, 2009
Posted 3/14/09

In these and in his re-presentations of propaganda films, Snyder is focused on the materiality of information - both how it can be molded to fit one's ends and how it exists not just as ideas and images, but bits of celluloid and silicon. This interrelation of the diverse pieces of the exhibition is what ultimately saves it from being a little too varied and sparse, and eventually allows it to live up to the photojournalism guidelines quoted in "Casio, Seiko, Sheraton, Toyota, Mars": "You should ha...
